This was I hard to draw. They just look wrong!
Can’t believe the write-a-thon is almost over. 6 weeks? Already?
Thing 1: I feel funny
Thing 2: It tickles!
Thing 1: Are you okay?
Thing 2: Just a little overworked
I was almost ready to export to photo library when sketchbook crashed. Crashed so hard it randomly deleted FOUR layers – leaving me with the original scratchy sketch and the most recent layer I had created. What did that layer contain? The coloring for the sole of the boot. All else was gone. So I had to redraw and recolor and poooo!
Yep I’m gonna find me a new app.
As an added extra, given you were kind enough to stick around and listen to me rant, here’s the original sketch.
Thing 1 wears sock on head; Thing 2 smiles; Boot laughs
Thanks to Emily and Andrew for inspiring this comic.
Thing 1 & Thing 2: We have a sock.
Thing 1: Socks need something
Thing 2: Something we’re missing
*Boot appears; Things smile*
This comic was inspired by a conversation on Annalee Newitz
‘s twitter about whether the Machine in Person of Interest is a metonym or synecdoche for the surveillance state. Hooray for interesting conversations!
Thing 1: I HAVE NO SOCKS
This one was inspired by Emily Skaftun
asking for information about recent work for the Horrific Miscue
blog. I helpfully told her that the Things like spoons. Thanks Emily!
Thing 1: I like spoons
Thing 2: They taste happy!
Thing 1: And crunchy
So this is what the inside of my brain looks like when it has been hanging out with the things.
